A product of the Credit Crunch – Young Savers

Let’s face it, the past 5 or 6 years have proved to be really tough for a lot of people. Many feel that they are starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel but with a possible interest rate rise on the horizon, we may not be out of the woods just yet.

So has anything good come out of this difficult financial period? I recently spotted a post on the Scottish Friendly twitter feed which suggested that there might be something good to come from it after all and that is the effect that it has had on the mentality of the young when it comes to saving.


Not all jobs are advertised online

When it comes to job hunting, in recent years the internet has proved to be an extremely useful resource which has made the process of finding a job a whole lot easier. In some ways though, this great online resource could also become a barrier to employment if you begin to rely solely upon it as your only job searching method, leading you to miss out on other opportunities. Whilst it is true that lots of companies will list their vacancies online, some will not and this may be especially true for smaller local firms. To find these unadvertised jobs then you will likely have to go about things the old fashioned way.


Blogger fined for ranking too well in Google

Hey everyone, hope you’ve all had a great week!

I have something a little bit different for you today so I hope you don’t mind me going a little bit off topic but I just thought my fellow bloggers out there might find this interesting. I came across a story yesterday about a blogger who wrote a review of a French restaurant, a review which managed to land her with a hefty fine and a visit to a French court, why? Simply because her post was ranking too well in Google’s search engine results.


Unexpected Expenses Do Happen – Are You Prepared?

Today we have a contribution from my good friend Glen Stephenson of If you’re interested in contributing to Money Bulldog please contact us.

Unexpected expenses can happen at any time and can sometimes cost you a small fortune. That’s why I think that it’s important that you are financially prepared for these budget busters, and that you have enough money saved up to deal with them.


Are comparison sites helpful or misleading?

In the past on Money Bulldog we’ve spoken about the importance of not just going for the cheapest policy on offer when using price comparison sites. Whether you are searching for Life Insurance, Car Insurance or Home Insurance, comparison sites can be a great tool in helping you to find the cheapest deal available, but price is not and should not be the only concern. To an extent these kind of sites can also help you to compare some policy features but as recent findings from the Financial Conduct Authority confirm, we all need to take care that we are not too drawn in by the cheap insurance quotes on offer and end up coming away with a policy that really isn’t right for us as a result.
